TRAFFIC DELAYS ON HIGHWAY 1
are expected as major Big Sur construction project begins.
A Big Sur-area project to repair slopes, restore the roadway and provide traffic control on Highway 1 at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park is expected to start this week, according to Caltrans.
Work will be done during the daytime and will include one-way reversing traffic control from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays starting Wednesday, April 10. Motorists can expect delays of up to 20 minutes.
Robert J. Franks Construction of Redding is the contractor on the $600,000 project, which Caltrans expects will be complete sometime this fall.
